Guests are asked not to block the progress of the processional or recessional. It is especially important to keep the center aisle clear so marchers may make their way to their seats.

At the conclusion of the ceremony, the marchers, in reverse order, move down the center aisle, exiting in the exact same manner and direction as the processional, move between the Bartlett Center and the Beech Tree, and circling around past the Foisie Innovation Studio and Harrington Auditorium.
